HPC is delighted to announce their participation in this new format of the Expo that will take place virtually for the first time for COVID-19 reasons. The fair was initiated by the German foreign chambers of commerce in Latin America as a platform to promote business networking, virtual workshops, and online consultancy on Latin America level. HPC will use this occasion to chat with visitors and discuss current questions about supply chain, port and terminal logistics, hinterland activities and how digitalisation helps overcome current challenges. The Expo Virtual Alemania Latinoamérica will take place from 14 to 17 July 2020.
Being an active member of the Business Association for Latin America, HPC has built a comprehensive network of government institutions, port and terminal operators in the region with whom we have been doing business for more than 40 years now with a history of more than 100 projects successfully accomplished.
Project challenges included port planning, privatisation and concessions, market assessments and operations optimisation, supported by simulation of terminals and traffic, procurement assistance for terminal equipment, and IT consulting regarding i.a. terminal operating systems (TOS) and digitalisation processes.
While HPC has rendered tender assistance for the procurement of automatic rail-mounted gantry cranes for an important grain terminal in the north of Chile earlier this year, an operations simulation study is under way for a major terminal in Peru and will be completed by end of this month. Having delivered a tailor-made Container Terminal Information System (HPC’s CTIS) for Chilean Puerto Coronel back in 2009, we have been rendering maintenance and support to them ever since, customizing and implementing new features to the CTIS according to their needs.
Evaluating Markets – Are you active in container, mining, or agricultural markets? HPC provides feasibility studies and due diligence for ports and terminals, evaluating economic implications, operational requirements, and investment needs.
Optimising Operations – Have you noticed challenging handling, storage, or traffic conditions on your terminal? We are prepared to develop alternative quay and yard strategies, determine required equipment, and review organisational structures.
Simulating Traffic and Cargo Flows – Do you want to check the practicality of measures before investing? HPC validates possible scenarios for making fully informed decisions on traffic and terminal optimisation.
Digitalising Strategies – Are you looking to move ahead from your current strategy to a new digital strategy? Are you in need of a digital master plan with clear prioritization of projects to be implemented? HPC can support you with all the know-how and experience we have.
Privatisation and Concession – Are you planning to privatise or renew the concession for a terminal, or are you interested in applying for a concession? HPC is ready to support you during the process as a technical consultant who will also provide the interface to the financial and legal advisors and to guide and manage the procedure.
Our “Expo” team is happy to make an appointment with you on the occasion of this special online event.
